Howard Wolfson, ex-Clinton Aide, Joins Fox News

Howard Wolfson was the communications director and a lead strategist for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. He is now the latest in a flood of post-campaign Fox News contributors. Wolfson is giddily following in the footsteps of Karl Rove, Mike Huckabee, and Lanny Davis.

This should not come as much of a surprise when you factor in the fact that Clinton was the Democratic candidate with the coziest relationship to Fox News. She asserted that she got fairer treatment there than on MSNBC. But then again, Rupert Murdoch had contributed to her campaign and held fundraisers for her. She appeared regularly on Fox while other Democrats pointedly stayed away. And her campaign chair, Terry McCauliffe, praised Fox so enthusiastically that they put him in an on-air promo for the network.

Now Wolfson joins the network that routinely bashes his party and is still repeatedly hosting representatives of so-called grassroots Hillary supporters who insist that they will vote for McCain in November.

In addition to his duties at Fox News, Wolfson will resume his post at his old lobbying firm, the Glover Park Group. It was from that position that he helped Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK) in his efforts to kill Network Neutrality.

I’m sure we will be able to count on Wolfson and his pals at Fox News to provide a voice for Democrats who hate their fellow Democrats.

  1. As I sit in my humble abode, never contemplating the idea of selling my values (such as they are) to top bidders, and eschewing the use of celebrity impersonations, I wonder what the value of a democratic system can be when it is run as a for-profit business. As an atheist, I believe that morality is an age old amalgamation of common sense based on social necessity, yet it seems that the commonality of that “sense” is under whelming. Thank you Clinton supporters for that lesson, and for teaching me the real meanings of two cliches: “Cut off your nose to spite your face” and “Can’t see the forest for the trees.” I wish Mr. Wolfson the grand life his political sensibility affords. Enjoy the extra feet on your boat, Howard.
